Webcomic / My Roommate Is an Elf

Go To

My Roommate Is an Elf is a comedic Science Fantasy Webcomic. It follows the life of Harold, a normal human, whose roommate is Griswold Strelich, an elf. There is also a troll named Dearg who frequently visits.Some of the humor derives from fantastical creatures doing mundane things, but mostly from the way the characters interact with each other. The style of humor is similar to that of a Sitcom.


  • All Trolls Are Different: Dearg has green skin, yellow eyes, and ears similar to an elf's. He turns to stone when exposed to sunlight, anduu donned a cloak to attend a parade.
  • Eye Glasses: Phil. When he takes off his glasses, it's shown that he only has scar tissue where his eyes should be.
  • Familiar: Griswold has a talking monkey familiar, who is very quick to point out that he is not a pet.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Jacinda's grandmother had nine lives, started the comic with five, and uses them up with wreckless abandon.
